Guardiola admits Hart decision may have been a mistake

When Chelsea submitted a £50million bid for the Spanish striker, the Premier League was rocked as Liverpool sold their main forward halfway through the season but Jamie Carragher has revealed the reaction of the Liverpool dressing room.

Manager Sean Dyche insisted that City ought to have been reduced to nine men when he delivered his post-match interview to the BBC.

Guardiola says the Belgian has recovered from his setback and does not need much time to get his place back in the starting XI. "We are averaging 21 shots per game - we're the best side in Europe in shots". The first target is to play good.

The Citizens, though, will see it as justice being done as Sane appeared to be brought to the ground by Jack Cork in the immediate build-up to that killer second goal. "We value the quality of the player, the human being, how settled he is".

Hart, 31, won five major trophies at City, including two Premier League titles, before falling out of favour after the arrival of Guardiola as manager in 2016.

"There's so many things", said Dyche. "Every player that is out and comes back makes us stronger".

"I think I would try to control myself and to respect the stadium and the supporters that were my supporters and stadium for many years".

Its pupils are mostly teenagers. "A lot of dead bodies, a lot of children's dead bodies". "This is not a terrorist act". State-run news agency TASS reported that most of the victims were students, quoting local ombudswoman Lyudmila Lubina.

Anthony Martial's second-half double looked set to seal another success for Manchester United as they hit back from conceding Antonio Rudiger's 21st-minute opener.

The Belgium global suffered a knee ligament injury in training just days after the 2-0 win over Manchester City on August 12 and has been sidelined ever since.

The hosts eventually found the equaliser in the 54th minute as some quick thinking by David Silva caught the Burnley defence napping, allowing Bernado Silva to fire into an empty net.

Sergio Aguero opened the scoring in the first-half before further strikes from Bernardo, Fernandinho Riyad Mahrez and Leroy Sane ensured the champions' 100% home record remained intact.

Guardiola also praised record signing Mahrez, who produced the flawless response to his costly late penalty miss in the goalless draw at Liverpool a fortnight ago.

"He played so good at Anfield, that's why I chose to play him again", Guardiola told reporters of the former Leicester City star.

"He scored an incredible goal, with an aggressive approach with the ball to go to the full-backs, the movement between the full-backs, especially in the second half with Phil [Foden], was so good. But we knew he is a talented guy who likes to play with the ball and in the 16-yard box he is a risky guy".
